susan rice fiasco a few weeks ago. we spent weeks arguing about who knew what over talking points someone else wrote. she withdrew her name from consideration for secretary of state before she was nominated for the job. no one expects john kerry's confirmation to be a problem. during the whole susan rice fight, there's no discussion over whether she would have been good at the job. there's not been much over whether kerry would be better. these inventing scandals can be obsessing, you spend so much time and energy running forensics on whatever claim, you're exhausted with the topic and you've learned nothing of value. that may be happening again with another high level cabinet post. >> senator graham, final question, can chuck hagel become secretary of defense if he's the president's nominee? >> a lot of republicans asking hard questions, i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i didn't know all of them. are out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it will be a challenging nomination, the hearings will mat

your position on susan rice? was she really that disqualified or was she railroaded by the right for political purposes? guest: that is hard to say. listen, she did not write those talking points that she read. she is taking the fall for what ultimately was a mistake. she has taken the fall for something that was not really her fault. from the republican perspective, somebody was going to have to -- should have paid the political price for making benghazi appeared to be a spontaneous protest gone awry, as opposed to what it was which was a terrorist attack. susan rice, because she was going to be nominated, got the unlucky number. i have heard both arguments. although i think it is fair to say that in no way did susan rice -- we have no information to suggest susan rice wrote the talking points based on the intelligence or was some way in that sense. the question remains -- did susan rice have a different, clearer picture from the classified information, and if she did, should she have not read what the unclassified talking points were? the context here before benghazi the big story

defense. what's your reaction there especially after the susan rice fiasco with her nomination? >> i think you are right that there are some democrats who want to have a conversation about some pieces of senator haggle's record. that makes him interesting and good choice he once earned two purple hearts. is he a maverick. his whole career. >> laura: why is that a good thing necessarily? again i'm not trying to be difficult. winning two purple hearts is amazing and we celebrate his honor and service. that doesn't have anything to do with why is he a good choice now when both democrats and republicans seem to have real problems with him. seems odd way floating someone as secretary of defense. >> he has a military background. he has a senate background. he has a cost cutting background. he was a business background. administration background. he comes to the table an independent streak that makes him not part of the partisan bickering in washington that people are sick of. while it's perfectly conversation. mitch mcconnell said our number one goal is is to defeat president obama. there is a s

blocked before they are nominated as we have just seen with susan rice. and we may be in the process of seeing with chuck hague well will is a real -- effect -- i mean, this has a real effect on the country which i think is lost on a lot of people. we get caught up in the politics of it all. you have these very important agencies and very important ten epts of government that are left without a leader and left without the ability to do the job of the american people need them to do. and it -- it -- it creates a lot of strife. >> well, it does. it also doesn't do much important the image of congress which could hardly sink any lower but somehow it does keep sinking lower. it kind of adds to the sense of dysfunction in washington. as you say, it does have practical has practical affects for instance the environmental protection agency, the lisa jackson is leaving at the administrator. >> right. >> that's an agency that probably needs a very, you know, strong leader to pursue its mission because it's so politically controversial. >> lastly, you think that it shouldn't be in president obama

or not he did enough to support susan rice, who had been talked about as a potential nominee as secretary of state, and pulled back after the criticism of what she had said on those sunday talk shows, where critics were suggesting she was misleading the american public about whether this was a spontaneous reaction to that anti-muslim video, whether it was a terror attack. the president dismissed all of that, in his words, he said politically motivated attacks against susan rice and the the rest of the administration and then he went on to say this about the investigation. >> with respect to who carried it out, that's an ongoing investigation. the fbi has sent individuals to libya repeatedly. we have some very good leads, but this is not something that you know, i'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now. >> reporter: now, you mentioned the reaction, the fact that the president said we've got some pretty good leads into who did this whether it's al-qaeda or some other terrorist group. frustration from the republican said they've already been attacking the president about

run, personae, ambassador susan rice was spawned by the abhorrent video. then when there was different story behind it she withdraw her tomorrow nation to be secretary of state -- she withdrew her nomination. >> when i went on the sunday shows on september 16th i was doing just as i have always done providing the best information available to me and available to our government at the time. i was very careful to explain that the information was preliminary and it could change. yet i think it was misconstrued and contorted to something much more nefarious that was not my intention. >> jon: having worked at the u.n., what do you think of that explanation? >> i have seen the u.n. ambassador's deck. there is classified computer on that desk. i know she has entire staff that is geared toward intelligence gathering. to is suggest she was handed talking points at the end of the process and just repeat these is bold faced live. she watches on the classified system how the points of are developed. she knows what is supposed to be fact or what we're thinking is fact. so to suggest at th

is the second nominee that he's had rolled on him? susan rice being the first and now chuck hagel, perhaps? >> first, as you say, chuck hagel's a good man, and i think there's worse things for this country than having a secretary of defense who's a veteran who really knows things and is somewhat reluctant to use military force. i actually like secretaries of defense who are often reluctant to use military force. it ought to be something we only do carefully. if the president, in fact, backs away from chuck hagel, i think it's a loss for this country. and also, it's bad for the president, and it also raises questions about the tactics. this whole idea floating trial balloons, essentially you put somebody out there. they're vulnerable. they become a pinata. people whack at them. even if they get through, they're weakened for the experience. i'll be honest with you, i don't understand this political process. if you really want people to get confirmed, from day one when you put them out there, you back them. i don't understand this int interregnum. >> what happens is, exactly what you

very flexible the next four years. earlier this month susan rice withdrew her name from consideration from post of secretary of state. that's after strong opposition to her potential nomination. republicans were critical of her after she went on five different sunday news shows. she gave this explanation for the terrorist attacks that killed four americans in benghazi, libya on september 11th. >> the best assessment we have is that in fact this was not a pre planned, premeditated attack. what happened initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. it was a consequence of the video that people gathered outside the embassy, and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are quite common in post revolutionary libya. that then spun out of control. but we don't see at this point signs that this was a coordinated, planned premeditated attack. >> obviously somebody saw it that way. sworn testimony indicates that within a day they saw it as a very concerting and planned and coor

conservative media for leading a preposterous and ultimately successful witch hunt against susan rice. totally undeserved. frankly, part of the conspiracy theories that cooked up against every person of color serving around the president. unjustified. it 45z a chilling e fejt on people in public service and, frankly, is sad for someone who had a stature and grav tas of john mccain that he panders to this kind of stuff. >> there's a trend. you seer eric holder, susan ric. >> this is a tough one. i have half a dozen in this basket. and i was going to say super pakts. but that being the worst. they just flopped. but i think it's how republicans rolled back the clock on women. you know, if you rebel, in 2010, women did very well in the republican party. it was the year of the momma grizzlies. but this year, they erased all of that. they're going after women and then, most recently, they didn't win any chairs. and then they backtracked. and they decided to be one woman to the administrative committee which is essentially the clerical committee. >> but it was interesting that they went

. i think a lot of people thought after susan rice's nomination for secretary of state went away and everybody thought, okay, here's john kerry. he's going to sail through the confirmation process. so is chuck hagel. i think a lot of people were surprised by this news. what happened? >> well, you know, in the classic washington case, people are asking the question, was hagel a trial balloon being floated that's already getting holes poked in it. not nominated yet, but all the chatter had been he was the front runner to be president obama's choice as secretary of defense. no announcement. the silence is deafening from the white house. but the opposition already mounting. a lot of criticism coming from both republicans and democrats about some of hagel's positions while he served in the senate. i have to tell you over the last several years he's been known as somewhat of an independent maverick. concerns about his position on iran, was he strong enough about iran being a terrorist state, about voting for sanctions against iran. but a lot of it folksing on his his position with israel.
